One of our favorite editorials using Nonoo was captured by Kelly Framel @ the Glamourai.

It involved a collaboration with de Gournay, an exquisite interior design company in London.

Be sure to visit their site. Their work is amazing.

Q&A Misha Nonoo

MM5A4060

1. Tell us a little about yourself.

“I’m the Creative Director and Founder of Nonoo, an advanced contemporary label, made in New York City. I am originally from London which is where I became fascinated with classic bespoke tailoring. The idea of designing pieces that are intended to last an eternity has always left an impact and has inspired me. After attending business school in London and Paris, I moved to New York and apprenticed with a local tailor. Years later in 2010, I launched my brand, Nonoo,which encompasses a timeless allure and couture sensibility for everyday life.”

 

2. You recently worked with interior design company de Gournay. Can you tell us a little bit about that experience (how it came to happen, etc.)?
“I grew up walking past the de Gournay shop every day on my way to school, and remember admiring their exquisite one of a kind fabric, which I would daydream about draping into elaborate creations. When I was approached about this collaboration it was a no brainer. It was a dream working with a heritage luxury brand that shares the same appreciation for interiors and art. ”

3.  Spring is finally here (even though it may not feel like it)! What are some of your favorite trends for the season?

“I really love the shorts suit trend because it offers an unexpected blend of sophistication and ease that is polished enough for the office, but still offers playfulness for after work cocktails.”

4. Is this your first time to Nashville? If not, what’s your favorite thing about our city?
“This is my first time and I am so excited to explore the city when I get any free time!”

5.  What is your favorite go-to accessory?

“I love hats and collect them from many locations around the globe. My favorite is my fez from Marrakech.”

Gus Mayer will be presenting Misha’s collection at Nashville Fashion Week on Tuesday April 2nd at The Pinnacle at Symphony Place
